The Ultimate Backfire

on Monday, February 25, 2008

In Hollywood last night, after giving out awards for 80 years, the Oscars finally took home an award of its own: Least. Watched. Ever.

In fact, the ratings were so bad that Nielson's preliminary reports are showing that last night's ratings were 14 percent lower than the least-watched ceremony in history.

Now why is that?

Many of the nutroots on the left have hopelessly tried to argue that it was because of the writer's strike. Ahh, but let's not forget, the writer's strike didn't begin until November, and the movies released in 2007 were written long before the strike ever began, so it can't be that.

I think it's because this year's films were heavily pessimistic against our own country. I think it's because they were sharply political and showcased a blatantly obvious liberal bias. I think it's because this years' host was the liberal left's Bush-hating funny-man, Jon Stewart. I think it was the fact that the movies spotlighted would be those that trashed both our troops and our country.

Time to get a clue, Hollywood. Contrary to what you may think, most of us here actually like America. We like our freedoms. We enjoy our liberties. We appreciate our troops.

So is it a coincidence, then, that when you guys produce a bunch of stinky anti-American films, that you get your lowest ratings ever?
